A-Z Photo Project | L is for Lavender

Some lavender from my yard. Set the stems on parchment paper and snapped away!


L is for Lavender



    • Well, I left the part about the wind out. It was too dark in my house by the time I got home to take this picture, so I had to set up outside. The wind was blowing super hard (and of course it stopped as soon as I finished) and the parchment paper and lavender kept flying everywhere! I kept yelling at it to stop. Heheh!

  1. I love lavender! I’m dying to get my hands on some pretty lavender like this to make Bonnie’s DIY scented soaps. Gorgeous picture, Patty! Are you luxuriating in your time off?

    • I’d give you some if only you lived closer! And yes, this has been a fabulous summer. My most relaxing since I started teaching! Hey, Sue of Birgerbird and I are meeting next Wednesday! Most likely in Napa. Please play hookie and join us!!!

      • Sadly, I can’t! I have so much going on at work right now and I’m trying to go on vacation (at some point) so need to put in my hours now. Sue and I will probably meet Wednesday night for dinner in the city, though. I would totally love to see you both together — someday, it’ll happen!

      • Oh how fun!! I’ll be dropping Bailey off with my parents before we leave so I’m only free during the day on Wednesday. We’ll have to try again next time! πŸ˜€

  2. Your Lavender is beautiful, Patty πŸ™‚ If you have a lot of lavenders in your garden, I suggest you to dry the lavenders and to put them in small bags with a ribbon and put them in your closet or anywhere in the house. Squeeze the lavender bags between your hands to let the fragrance escape (family recipe). Have a nice week!

  3. Pretty in its simplicity, Patty. Coincidentally, we’re now in Bulgarian lavender country. I’m eager to stroll the fields soon, and just might be inspired to make lavender crΓ¨me brΓ»lΓ©e. πŸ™‚

Please tell me what you think!
